Ok I just have a quick question. Does marriage really work? I hope that one day I will get married and the thought of being proposed to gives me goosebumps....But are there really any happily married people out there? I mean couples who have been together for 10+ years with no cheating? Does wedded bliss exist? I hear all these stories from people about how their spouses are no longer interested in them sexually or emotionally and how drastically the relationship changed after they got married. Or the spouse cheated. It's almost enough to make me not want to ever get married. Every engaged couple wants to believe that their marriage will work...But I guess what i'm asking for is proof. I'd like to hear from someone...Anyone who's marriage is going strong. I'm not an angry girlfriend or a jaded wife. I'm not even engaged. I'm just a girl in a wonderful relationship that may or may not lead to marriage and i'm simply craving some support to the idea that the way things are now can stay that way. Thanks.
No one can promise that everthing is going to last the way that it was through the beginning. I like to say the "honeymoon faze" there is nothing like the beginning of a relationship. The courting, romantic dates, the kind gestures, the touch and feel, and the words that you exchange with eachother in the beginning. These in time weather your dating for a long time or married seem to fade. Marriage is an oath that you take by law and by religion. That doesn't mean that things will remain as well as it did at the moment in which you get married. A long lasting marriage depends on you and your partner, if you two really cosintrate on what is important to maintain a healthy marriage it could last a life time. Open and honest communication from beginning to the end about everything the marriage will remain strong in the sense that you will stay together. But for the most part the oh and the aw of the relationship seems to fade away but most of the time you don't even see that happen it's called flowing "stay with the flow" so if there is true happiness through the dating process and you feel it in your heart that he is the true one then you make the choice from there. Hope this helped. Heather
Marriage is really hard and i've only been married for a month. So I think that pretty much says so. But even though it its hard, it could last forever,it may not be a fairy tale but there is something called true love. I have a used-to-be-classmate whose parents have been together for more than 50 years now and if you see them,it's like they were married yesterday. It's incredible how the talk about eachother. A big plus in their marriage is that they have god as the head of their family. They're really christian and I think that when you have god in your live and you really have this high level of spirituality,it helps to keep a marriage strong and to grow stronger. I think the fundamental of a good marriage is: god,love,comunication,respect.
